The team from The Chaser’s War on Everything seems determined to go out with a bang, attracting more media criticism before their final show airs next week.
Yesterday in an attempt to scale Kevin Rudd’s local church Executive Producer Julian Morrow was stopped by Australian Federal Police.
Wearing full mountaineering garb he was attempting to reference to a recent draft management plan that calls for a ban on people climbing Uluru.
But the ABC had been advised by the PM’s minders that Rudd was to emerge from the service and comment on Australian casualties in the Jakarta bombings, and news of the death of an Australian soldier in Afghanistan.
“Today is a really sad time for all Australians,” said the PM.
“I think I speak on behalf of all Australians when I say our thoughts and our prayers and our hearts go out to so many grieving families across Australia today.”
The Chaser is reported to have proceeded with filming the stunt. Well, Rudd did previously say he was prepared to be mocked anywhere anytime…
But seriously, isn’t timing supposed to be the first rule of comedy?
